University of Bristol
PhD Studentships

The Artificial Intelligence group of the Department of Engineering
Mathematics, University of Bristol University has been awarded an EPSRC
CASE studentship for 3 years starting in October 1996. Professor Jim
Baldwin who is head of the AI Group will supervise the student in
collaboration with BT Research Labs:

Fuzzy Methods for Induction in Telecommunication Applications

The PhD research will use and extend software developed in the AI group
at Bristol to automatically extract fuzzy rules from data sets of input
/ output data. Two problems have been identified which are of interest
to BT. The first is to find fuzzy rules which will help to identify the
mood of a computer user from facial measurements. An initial step will
be to determine the identity of the user from these measurments. The
second problem involves input/output data associated with Network
Management Systems. In this case we would hope to learn rules which
would help in the automatic management of network activities.

The successful candidate will have a good degree in Computer Science,
Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, or a related subject. The project
would suit someone interested in applying their knowledge to a
commercially important problem. Applicants should be EC nationals.

An internally funded studentship is also available, starting in October 1996.

Applications including full c.v. and the names of two referees should
be sent by e-mail or post to
